KALIPSLASTI, India — The car rental market in Kerala is dominated by the luxury car rental operators and its owners are in constant search for new customers.
This year, more than 500,000 cars were rented to foreigners and tourists, but not many of them were used by locals.
In the past few years, the car rental industry has witnessed the introduction of new technologies and the rise of mobile app services.
The biggest players in the sector are KALP and LVMH.
LVMh is a leading car rental company in Kerala, and the company operates in the cities of Kalyan, Kannur and Kutch.
KALP, on the other hand, operates in smaller cities such as Ernakulam and Kannanagar.
Both car rental companies offer low rates, but the car prices are quite high compared to the locals, said Akshay Bajpai, senior manager, sales and marketing, KALPs car rental business, in a phone interview.
“The cars are very cheap in Kalyans capital city.
The cars are cheap, the price is lower, but if you want to rent a car, you can’t find it at a lower price than a luxury car in Kannu,” said Aeshay.
LVMH, on its part, offers good rates, especially compared to KALRs prices, said its manager, Kalyavaraju.
He said the cars are used by many foreigners and local residents.
While the companies do offer good prices, they do not offer any discounts for locals, he said.
The companies also charge more than the local rates, even if they are in the same vehicle.
When it comes to parking, the drivers of luxury cars usually park in front of KAL’s offices, while cars of KLP cars are often parked in the street.
Most luxury cars also come with private cab, which the drivers often rent from the car hire agency.
There are also several car rental agencies in the city, like the one run by KALs car rental.
Bajpai said, if you park in KALS offices, the vehicles will park at their premises.
At KAL offices, they rent the car and will rent it out to the customers, who can then park it at their house or at a friend’s house, he added.
Apart from the cars, KLP offers various vehicles including luxury cars, luxury trucks and luxury bikes, which are used mostly by locals and tourists.
Although KLP does not have a dedicated car rental office, there are various rental agencies that rent cars and motorcycles at the office.
Akshay said the car rentals are good, especially in Kalinga and Kalyakkam, but he did not think that they would be able to compete with luxury car rentals.
He said, KALS car rental agency has over 700 cars and is the best, especially if you look at the price range of the cars.
The company has a large parking lot and offers high rates.
But, if it comes down to choosing the best rental car, the KAL and KLP car rental firms can easily beat their rivals.
